I Will Follow

PopMatters recently placed odds on which bands will be topping "best band ever" lists as the Boomer generation, um, dies off. Not that PopMatters is sad about it because since they consider the whole "best ever" list phenomena a cultural reminder of which generation is still in charge. After all we've all seen these...:

...many navel-gazing pat-on-the-back love letters that baby boomers send to themselves to remind themselves that everything was better when they were young: the relationships, the culture, and most certainly the music.

: I think they've got the odds just about right since earlier this week I flipped between three radio stations playing songs by this candidate for best band ever all at the same time. Maybe music on this scale is really all about the marketing.
